phone carriers. we never really imagined that all this data would be warehoused under the nsa. and i think that's what's giving the american people a lot of pause right now. and i think that's what needs to be explained to the american people. and congress will be reviewing this issue in section 215 of the patriot act to see if this is expanded beyond the original intent of the law. >> what actually changes, bart? do you think there's much room here to fundamentally change these programs? because all the nsa says is, look, maybe we could change who controls this meta data, which is in this virtual vault, and who has accessto it and how it's kept, which may be not enough for those who think there's a problem. >> well, congress may decide not to allow the nsa or via the fbi to collect every single call record of every single american for this purpose. that's not what the president's argument sounded like in his news conference. he sounded like he wanted to, as you say, just put a little more oversight on it internally, within the executive branch, and to sort of be slightly more transp

, who said wait a minute, i know the nsa tells us 54 plots in one way or another have been thwarted because of the program senator chambliss is referring to, he says that's a bit of an overstatement, and he said it in open testimony this week. listen. >> what i said in open testimony is that section 215, to thwart or prevent 54 terrorist plots. not by any stretch can you get 54 terrorist plots. this program is not effective. it has to end. so far i'm not convinced by what i've seen. >> do you agree with that? >> we had a meeting in the white house. saxby and i attended it with the president. there were about ten of us, democrats and republicans, from the house and the senate, and we spent an hour and a half with the president in the oval office, an hour and a half going over this nsa, debating it back and forth. the nsa 215 program that we're talking about here is a program on domestic surveillance. in other words, do we need to collect all of the phone records of all of the people living in america for five years so that if we're going to target one particular person we're ready to

surveillance program so many people are talking about, including a change in how the nsa collects phone records, more transparency by the secret foreign intelligence court, that's the fisa court, and the creation of a task force of private citizens. joining me this morning barton gellman of "the washington post" who has been writing extensively about edward snowden and the nsa, special correspondent for nbc news ted koppel, and the chairman of the house homeland security committee, republican congressman mike mccaul. barton gellman, let me start with you. has edward snowden won? has he accomplished what he set out to do, which is not only get a debate going but force change in these programs? >> he has accomplished far more than anyone in his position could have reasonably hoped to have accomplished. he told me his greatest fear was that he would come out and do this and whole story would be -- you know, roiling around for a day and it would be gone. now you have president obama being forced to say that he welcomes the debate, which he welcomes sort of like the ceo who gets an ang

safety, whether it's surveillance laws and the nsa, whether it's our policing tactics, how far is too far in the name of public safety? what changes the focus of this debate? what wins this debate to your side of the argument, do you think? >> we've got to go back to the founding principles of this country. when our founders were courageous enough to say we deserve to be both free and safe, and those who would give up freedom in the name of safety don't deserve either. and that's why it's so important that trayvon's family has stood up, that's why it's so important that so many will be standing up at the march in washington next saturday. that's why it's critical that we all come together and realize at the end of the day, this is not about race. this is about freedom. this is about people in this country being able to walk out the door and not fear the cops when they're not doing anything wrong. >> benjamin crump has an article about the effect of trayvon martin, an op ed piece in the "washington post" today. benjamin crump, thank you very much. sybrina fulton, we really appreciate y
